Studying Sha’ar HaBitachon, Rabbeinu Bachaya’s “Gate of Trust” ~ the Timeless Torah Book that can teach US ALL How to Live with Certainty and Discover Tranquility!
Chapter Four, Part Fifteen: “ALL ABOUT THE MONEY”
We’ve already resolved the true measure of Trust is to know and consider with absolute certainty that G-d will provide our basic needs. Yet, we have also noted that at times G-d will provide certain people far more than they need.
In the previous Episode we learnt that the wealth serves as a huge “Nisayon” = test of one’s inner spiritual courage, fortitude, and mettle. Choosing to do the right thing under these circumstances can indeed be a tremendous challenge!
Rabbeinu Bachaya now continues to address and illustrate the parameters of this proverbial “Test of Affluence” and clarifies the mistakes people make due to lack of understanding. By spelling out the full Torah Truth about the income we earn and the wealth we might be fortunate to amass.
Here we will learn how the Money Hashem provides us with isn’t always for the same purpose. This fascinating discovery about the differing Dimensions of our Earnings will open our eyes to the reason so many people make such big mistakes.
Being privy to Torah truisms on Salaries, Savings and Holdings will provide us the clarity required to make the proper moral and righteous choices and pass our Test of Trust with flying colours — positively transforming the way we choose to live our life!
